    Hello All- I'm from Houston Texas and Just received my first smoker today for Fathers Day. It's a Grillware propane verticle smoker, It's so new I havent even fired it up yet!! I look forward to searching through this site and getting some good ideas and recepis as well as techniques. I guess I have put off smoking for so long because it always seemed so complicated but I've got one now and hopefully it will produce some delicious meals.......especially ribs!!!........
  2. Welcome to SMF Lance-a-lot. You will find out smoking is not that hard. You just have to have patience. Seach the threads and you will find anything you are looking for. If not, there are plenty of friendly people here to help you, just ask.

    Check out the 3-2-1 method for spareribs. It works like a charm. When you do them, don't forget the pictures!

    Don't forget to season your smoker before the first use...... [​IMG]

    Takes just a couple hours but makes a big difference!!

    Lance-A-Lot Welcome to SMF. Glad you're here. ABT's are Atomic Buffalo Turds .. or.. Jalepeno peppers that have the seeds and membrane removed stuffed with cheese plus anything under the sun you might think would taste good with them then wrapped or topped with bacon and smoked until the bacon is crisped up to your liking.

    Don't be a stranger and if you have any more questions just ask.

    Welcome Lance -

    ABTs = atomic buffalo turds or smoked stuffed Jalepino peppers. A real treat if you haven't tried them.

    Fattys are smoke breakfast sausage - usually Jimmy Dean 4" sausages another favorite treat and almost requirement when your smoking.

    One of the favorites around here is cream cheese and smoked fatty stuffing wrapped in bacon. Or Cream cheese and shrimp wrapped in bacon. Or cream cheese, mushrooms and smoked fatty wrapped in bacon...
